About This Project

We all know that birds have a great vision, right?

But what if they could also smell?!

We demonstrated that foraging birds exploit volatiles emitted from crop plants damaged by insects. This knowledge opens new avenues in using birds in sustainable insect pest management.

We are expanding this project to determine which bird species respond to these cues agricultural, forest and wetland environments.

Blast off!
